MILLAR KREKLEWETZ LLP is a boutique Canadian law firm with lawyers who have significant expertise in respect of Customs Seizures.
The following is a short introduction to the services we offer in respect of Customs Seizures.
Section 110 of the Customs Act provides Canada Border Services Agency (the CBSA) officers with the authority to seize goods and conveyances with respect to which the Customs Act has been contravened (e.g., failure to report goods or falsely declaring imported goods). The Customs Act also authorizes officers to seize passenger-carrying conveyances and anything else that may provide evidence of a contravention of the Customs Act. Pursuant to a seizure, the CBSA takes possession of your goods and acquires ownership in accordance with the Customs Act.
If your goods have been seized, Millar Kreklewetz LLP can assist you in making representations to the CBSA to establish that there was no contravention of the Customs Act and to otherwise assist you in the return of your goods. Millar Kreklewetz LLP also has significant expertise in appealing seizures to the CBSA and, where necessary, Millar Kreklewetz also has experience in representing taxpayers in respect of seizures before the Federal Court
